It was the first time I’ve seen people standing around in t-shirts. I didn’t plan on selling anything this year. I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to spend the time to clean out the closet to figure out what could go.
This year was a new location, so I was a tad unsure exactly where the pavilion was. When I pulled into the parking lot and saw all the motorcycles, I knew I was in the right spot. They were almost all dualsports with a couple exceptions like the Indian above.
It was fun looking at all the different configurations of bikes. I like the NC700 kitted out next to two BMWs.
This Vstrom was nicely setup. I secretly want it. Hmm… I just wrote that, so I guess not much of a secret now. The gas can on the front made me smile.
I really like this Honda scrambler too. Such a nice look with the exhaust high in the middle.
There was a Vstrom 1000 for sale. It was kinda tempting, but I’d prefer a 650.
There were several motorcycles for sale at the swap meet. I think I counted five including this 125cc kit bike. A few of us were talking that if he spent a bit more money to make it street legal, it would easily sell.
An 80s XR650. There was a 250 as well, but it sold in a few minutes.
There was also quite the collection of stuff for sale this year. It was mainly riding gear.
There was also a lot of camping gear, a couple chain saws, and a scooter.
My friend Paul had a table. His rule was if it didn’t have a price tag it was free. Sadly, not many takers.
Lots of tools as well.
I ended up buying a new battery. I think it was originally for an XR400, but I plan to use it on my lawn mower. The 12v battery for the electric start failed last year. The new one is almost $80, so with a little duct tape this $20 battery should be a great replacement! There was a few other tempting items, but I managed to escape without filling my luggage.
The pic above is for some upcoming local motorcycle related events.
I had a nice time looking at all the stuff for sale and catching up with a few other riders. I appreciate the efforts to organize and get this event going. Thanks!
